Wednesday 29th June, 2016 at Kegworth.
Although our mooring was very quiet, it was opposite a large building site so a great contrast to our very rural, remote and rather lovely moorings over the last few days. We were interested to see that the crane is controlled remotely from the ground - no small cabin high above the site.
Later, she couldn't resist sticking her head out of the window to look down the line (and got very wet and windswept!). This claims to be the only heritage railway with twin tracks.
Soon afterwards, the rain finally stopped, the sun came out and we started to dry out and warm up (we'd started to get chilled).
At Normanton-on-Soar there is a very unusual church. It welcomes boaters and even has its own mooring for worshippers! The countryside hereabouts is lovely.
Trip: 154 miles, 98 locks and 116.6 hours.
